February 12, 2014 Leave a comment

Before there was an airplane, there were doodles of cool flying machines. And before there was a submarine, there were doodles of magical underwater sea explorers.  Since the beginning of time, ideas big and small, practical and playful, have started out as doodles.  And Google is ready for more!

One talented young artist will see his or her artwork on the Google homepage and receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school.

This year, Google is asking students to create their doodles based on the theme “If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place…” To enter the competition simply download the application form, print it, doodle your version of the Google logo based off this year’s theme and submit online or by mail.

Closing date for entries is Thursday, March 20th.
